Stunning Places Around the Globe

Taj Mahal by Trey Ratcliff

We've all heard of the Taj Mahal, the Grand Canyon, and the Pyramids of Giza to be amazing places in our planet, and they've gained their reputation for a reason; however, there are other not so known places in the Earth that offer breathtaking landscapes, majestic colors, and much more. The beauty in this world is vast.

Crystalline Lake, Jiuzhaigou National Park, China
Known for its many multi-level waterfalls and colorful lakes is a nature reserve in the north of Sichuan, a province in south western China.

Ice Skating on Paterswoldse Meer 
A lake just south of the city of Groningen in the Netherlands

Capilano Suspension Bridge, Vancouver, British Columbia
The current bridge is 136 metres (446 ft) long and 70 metres (230 ft) above the river.

The Great Barrier Reef, Australia
Off the East Coast of Australia, this natural wonder offers more than 600 islands and coral cays, covering more than 300,000 sq. km and welcomes a vast variety of sea life and hundreds of birds species.

Venice, Italy
I had to make an exception for this well-known city in the Veneto Region of Northern Italy. Its beautiful setting is one to be seen before it is gone.

Meteora, Greece
From the etymology: "suspended in the air," Meteora is the home of six (still inhabited) monasteries that were constructed on limestone rocks many centuries ago.

Kashmir Valley, Jammu and Kashmir, India
This valley is between the Himalayas and the Pir Panjal Range. Srinagar, its main city, is famous for its lakes, houseboats, and gardens.

Santorini, Greece
This island formed by volcanic caldera, is very unique. The vast white architecture is a canvas for the blue sky and the sunset.

I, personally am a lover of nature's creations and the planet's immense beautiful culture, but even though God is in everything, I try to not get distracted by these views and try to remember Him more.
